It's been clear for a couple of years now for anyone who wants a 'good' Apple 'computer' - in desktop form, in mini form, or in imac form - that Apple forgot about 'us'. Was today the day when Apple truly made clear and public that it was no longer a computer company? Apple for the past months has been describing the 'macmini' as the 'new macmini' - even when it's been over a year old. and today it introduces a version that - even if you buy the top-end (if you're interested in graphics), is worse than the one it introduced two years ago? Apple used to have a vision - they would have an 'event' and they'd introduce that vision - now they introduce a new minor increment in performance. I'd love to be able to read a book on my mac, on my imac, on my powermac, on my 'retina macbook pro' - oh, wait a minute, I've got a 'retina macbook pro' but Apple won't let me read an 'ibook' that I bought on my iphone?'. Thanks Apple. I am not 'anti-apple' but I am against an 'unquestioning' approach. My view is that this company has had great success, but is now leaving behind both the principles and also the practices that made its success -namely - a strong vision that was based on the consumer's point of view as well as an emphasis on producing high quality product that was the best of its class, and priced accordingly. the way i see it at the moment is that - Apples' view is one of dictating to the consumer (basically saying 'we know what is best for you' - as well as producing below class value and trying to justify it with the Apple name.
